Wiz Khalifa Scores First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200

Wiz Khalifa is winning. The Taylor Gang leader earns his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 this week.

Led by the single “We Dem Boyz,” the rapper’s third major label album Blacc Hollywood takes the top spot, selling 90,000 copies in its first week, according to Billboard.

However, the first-week sales were less than his previous efforts, 2011’s Rolling Papers (No. 2, 197,000) and 2012’s O.N.I.F.C. (No. 2, 148,000).

“Number 1 album on they ass. Thank you taylors,” tweeted Wiz. “Honestly we’ve been waiting for this day for a very long time. I cant thank you enough.”

Over on the Billboard Hot 100, Nicki Minaj’s single “Anaconda” jumps 39-2, her highest Hot 100 rank. The Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled song surpasses her 2011 hit “Super Bass,” which peaked at No. 3.

“Anaconda” marks Minaj’s 11th Hot 100 top 10, extending her reign among female rappers.
